I received my package in the mail and quickly noted to myself how great they felt. They felt very soft, yet at the same time had a thick, durable quality to them. The next time my fiance and I went out to eat, I put them on and was surprised at how great they felt even being super pregnant. I enjoyed my dinner without having to worry about leaking through my liner, Just knowing I had the extra protection put my mind at ease.
Fast forward to when I had the baby. I bled. A LOT. As do most women after having a baby. I was TERRIFIED of going anywhere for fear that I would soak through the pad I was wearing. I was much more comfortable knowing I had extra protection of the PeriodPanteez there to save me. And I never once had any problems. I had enough to worry about with taking a newborn in public without the embarrassment of leaking through my pads and this product definitely helped a lot.
The only suggestion I have is to come up with an alternative to the boy short design. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE the design; however many pads, including “mama cloth” are made with wings and for me it was difficult to use these with the boy short design.
***Update 1/2/13:Call it mommy brain, but after speaking with the creator after this post, she stated that the disposable wings actually stick nicely to PeriodPanteez without moving. I honestly didn’t think about this and just cut the wings when I used the PeriodPanteez. Just me not thinking after having a baby! I can’t wait to try it out when my period returns. I will update again when that happens 😉
